Question: 187 Why is "netstat -nr" used in substitution of the route command when a network connection is not functioning correctly? A. "netstat -nr" displays the routing table without performing reverse name lookup. B. Route requests the network driver for data, but "netstat -nr" will display the kernel's routing table. C. The route command can be used if the network is functional. The "netstat -nr" displays only the local machine. D. Route will attempt to contact and verify the connections to each host in the routing table using ping. If the network fails, route will stop responding. Answer: C. Explanation: The Route command is used to display the routing table. If the network is not functional, the routing table will only contain static routes; it will not contain any dynamic routes. The netstat command displays information about the local machine whether the network is functional or not. Reference: Roderick W. Smith. Sybex Linux + Study Guide: Page 373/4. Incorrect Answers: A.
